Carrowon, Jr. of Warrensville found this very short obituary. It was in a book in a library in High Point, NC. The book was in an alphabetized recitation of things that were important to the researcher and was prepared during The Depression from items gleaned from early eastern North Carolina newspapers, etc. The date was written on the margin of the page and was unclear. The source was North Carolina Free Press - December __, 1832 and said see page 4 for Elder Carrowon's biography.) [From Deaths and Marriages from Tarboro, North Carolina Newspapers 1824-1865 by Hugh Buckner Johnson Wilson, NC]  See Elder Green Carrowan's biography.
* The Jarvis Research Group believes that the first wife of Elder Green Carrowon (Carawan) could have been Agness Jarvis, daughter of Foster Jarvis, III and his wife Elizabeth (Mason) Jarvis, not Britannia Jarvis as sometimes reported.  It is believed that Britannia Jarvis was a daughter of Joseph and Sophia Jarvis.
